The Perfect Combination: Chocolate, Coconut, and Cheesecake

Traditionally an American classic, German chocolate cake is a rich and decadent delight. It features layers of moist dark chocolate cake, a delightful filling of pecans and coconut, and a creamy fudge frosting that envelops the entire creation. But why stop there? I’ve taken this cake to another level by adding a creamy cheesecake center that will leave you wanting more.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Let’s start with melting some bittersweet chocolate. Choose a variety with around 70% cocoa solids for the best results. Add it to a microwave-safe bowl along with a splash of water and microwave until melted. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate over a Bain-Marie.

  2. While the chocolate cools, whip up some egg whites to stiff peaks using a kitchen mixer. Pro tip: Room temperature eggs whip up better, so remember to leave them out before you start baking.

  3. Cream together room temperature butter and sugar in a separate bowl using the mixer. Slowly add in the sugar, taking your time to achieve a creamy consistency.

  4. In another bowl, combine the dry ingredients—flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mixing them separately ensures even incorporation into the cake batter.

  5. Add the egg yolks and vanilla extract to the butter mixture, followed by the cooled melted chocolate. Alternate adding the dry ingredients and buttermilk, mixing until just combined.

  6. Lastly, gently fold in the whipped egg whites using a thin metal spoon. This technique preserves the air in the batter, resulting in a light and fluffy cake.

  7. Divide the batter between two 9″ cake pans and level the tops with a spatula. Bake at 350ºF/180ºC for approximately 40-45 minutes, or until the cakes pull away from the edges of the pans.

  8. Once the cakes are baked and cooled, it’s time to assemble this masterpiece. Lay one cake layer on a serving plate and generously spread the coconut pecan filling, which consists of evaporated milk, butter, sugar, egg yolks, and toasted pecans.

  9. Place the second cake layer on top, flat side up, for a smooth surface to work with. Frost the entire cake with your favorite chocolate buttercream frosting, ensuring the filling stays put.

  10. For added flair, pipe some rosettes on the top using any remaining frosting. This classic touch adds a beautiful and professional finish to your creation.

  11. Once your masterpiece is complete, cut a slice and marvel at the layers of chocolate, coconut filling, and velvety cheesecake center. The combination of flavors is absolutely divine, and this cake is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
